Cape Town: South Africa batsman AB de Villiers has said that he is now equally comfortable in his role of wicketkeeper.

On the eve of the first of five one-day internationals against Pakistan, De Villiers said `cricket-wise he is where he wants to be`.

He added that he is comfortable with batting and very comfortable behind the stumps.

De Villiers wanted to use the January one-day series against the Black Caps as an opportunity to hone his captaincy skills, but he was suspended after the first ODI for the team`s slow over rate.

The Proteas went on to lose the series 2-1 and had since analysed their mistakes and De Villiers was confident they were back on the right track, the report said.
